Cheryl Ursin, author of the article: "It's all about the buzz: Getting the most out of beer promotions," stated simply that "Beer companies, of course, want to sell more of their beer." A beer promotion encompasses a range of marketing and advertising tactics such as giving away free products or offering related items such as bottle openers, caps, key chains and t-shirts with the company logo.

Hiring promotional female models to give away your products at bars, clubs and festivals is a simple way to get the attention of male consumers. Promotional models often wear fashionable, eye-catching outfits that have the brand logo on them. According to the website boostmyproduct.com, "Beverage Companies pay promotional models extremely well because they are able to communicate their brands' message in an sexy, entertaining way..."
